Cultural Entrepreneurship (Online Workshop)
UBC Centre for Cultural Planning and Development
Deadline:
April 5, 2016
Link >>

Description

Cultural entrepreneurship is an economic as well as socio-cultural activity, based on innovation, risk taking and maximizing opportunities. This online workshop focuses on the essence, uniqueness and importance of cultural entrepreneurship in the overall strategic management and policy-making process. An important aspect of the workshop is intrapreneurship in the cultural sector and how to manage internal innovations in a systematic way.

The workshop combines theoretical discourses with practical case studies from different countries around the world. Participants critically analyze entrepreneurial cases and examples by implementing appropriate theoretical models. As part of the learning process, we identify key issues and suggest strategic solutions for the development of start-up organizations, as well as from the perspective of cultural policy-making. These include:

  • How can we, as cultural planners, managers and policy-makers, promote a proper environment in which cultural entrepreneurship can flourish?
  • What are the ways to connect creative practices and innovative tools with new business and financial models, and secure appropriate financial and material infrastructures to support them?
  • What strategies does a cultural entrepreneur need to elaborate in order to manage a start-up creative enterprise in a sustainable mode?
  • What is the role of strategic alliances, networking, collaboration and partnership in the entrepreneurial practice in the cultural sector?
  • Why and how could cultural entrepreneurs expand and manage their startup ventures abroad and what is the support system for international entrepreneurship in the arts?
This course is designed to fill the gap between a typical short webinar and a longer online course. Each workshop is led by an international expert, combines lectures and small group discussion, and meets online for two (2) hours, once a week for three weeks. There is also an online discussion board for sharing information and group discussion during the three weeks.  There is no grading.

Tourism Workshop 3: Leveraging Cultural Tourism for Community Development
UBC Centre for Cultural Planning and Development

Description

Cultural tourism depends on the respectful inclusion and recognition of cultural resources to benefit visitor experiences, the destination as a whole, and the residents who live there. Without the people who are the makers, managers, and presenters of cultural experiences, the destination is unable to offer and sustain authentic cultural tourism experiences. When applied locally or regionally cultural tourism can serve as a vehicle for community development. By addressing techniques in stakeholder identification and engagement, this workshop explores a variety of approaches to engage a broader constituent base and forge new partnerships among the various groups to engage in cultural tourism development and support broader community development objectives. With intercultural visitation on the rise, you also explore respectful cross-cultural interactions among tourists and residents.

By the end of this workshop, you will:

  • Identify various destination stakeholders to involve in cultural tourism and determine how best to communicate and collaborate with them during the planning process;
  • Recognize the different roles and responsibilities of cultural tourism ‘guests’ and ‘hosts’;
  • Be able to describe the unique issues surrounding cultural tourism and Indigenous peoples;
  • Understand the roles and responsibilities of destination hosts to ensure the visitor has the desired cultural experience.
This workshop is designed to fill the gap between a typical short webinar and a longer online course. Each workshop is led by an international expert, combines lectures and small group discussion, and meets online for two (2) hours, once a week for three weeks.
